|Near market entrance in Southern Spain|
|Tim is a good shopping companion|
One of the great things about visiting southern Spain (Malaga Area) are the HUGE outdoor markets held in different cities/towns every day of the week. We spent several sunny, warm hours at a market not far from the city of Malaga (Arroyo de la Miel). I did most of my souvenir/gift shopping at this market and wished I had a reasonable way to buy and ship more items.
I found a number of items that were particularly well priced and a willingness to "haggle", particularly if you were buying more than one item from a seller. Not surprisingly, I ended up with "twos" of many things.
Here are some photos of this day at the market. I am sure I will come up with more "Spain" postings and probably more "shopping" postings as well! This is a lovely area!
|Nice rugs and textiles|
|Floral stands - these were prices at 2.5 to 3.0 euros - not bad!|
|The ceramics were beautifully done - very tempting but I didn't want the burden of hauling these.|
|Look at the great price on these oranges!|
|I bought one of these necklaces - it may go my sister for her recent birthday!|
|I loved these little purses and bought one for each of my granddaughters .|
|I REALLY loved these textiles and the price was pretty good. I had no way of getting them home however.|
|Shopping - it was a lot of fun!|
